Involving the Rent Tribunal
If you have a dispute with your landlord, for example about the amount of rent you are paying, or maintenance of your property, you may be able to ask the Huurcommissie (Rent Tribunal) for a decision on the issue.

What types of disputes are heard by the Huurcommissie?
You can ask the Huurcommissie for a ruling if you have a dispute about:
- independent property (in Dutch);
- rented rooms;
- caravan sites.
This only applies to the social housing sector.
In some cases, the Huurcommissie also handles disputes in the private housing sector (in Dutch).

Submitting an application to the Huurcommissie
A decision by the Huurcommissie is binding. This means that you and your landlord must both comply with the decision.
